Don't you just LOVE Reveal Day at Swirlydoos???!?!?! I know I do!!! But, you know what I love more......getting my kit in the mail!!!!!! Every month is like my birthday...lol!!!!!
The August Kit Shabby Ambition is absolutely gorgeous.
I did a little "photoshoot" of my Delilah in a tutu. I'm still a total amateur at taking pictures but I'm learning. Also, I've been playing around with Photoshop...so be prepared to see a lot of altered photos. Please visit the Photoshop thread for lots of shared tips from the amazing swirly girls. There is soooooooooo much inspiration there.
I made the butterfly by printing on card stock, adding glaze then diamond dust. These are my most favorite butterflies.
I hot glued the trim around the photo. I painted the flourishes brown and used the brown smooch to do a bit of highlighting.
I LOVE the grays and blues of this page. And, of course, the photo of Delilah playing shy.
I made the flourishes with the Liquid Pearls that came in the embellie add-on. You can find my tutorial HERE on how to make your own flourishes.
You're a STAR
I wanted to go with a dark color scheme with this page because of the altered photo.
I'm so excited that my vines are featured in the Embellishment Add-on. I do have some extras in my Etsy Shop if you missed out. I added some Diamond Dust from the embellie add-on to the leaves and flowers.
This page is based on the monthly sketch by Begguna. The sketch is awesome. Though, I had a tad bit hard time with it because it called for 3 photos and I'm a 1 photo gal. Love the way it turned out.
I lightly colored the flourishes and added Diamond Dust....can you tell I love the stuff?!??!
Thanks so much for taking a peek. Be sure to stop by Swirlydoos to get your Shabby Ambition Kit!
